Introduction
The 1.3 Megapixel Compact IP Dome Camera features a 1/3.8” Sony
Progressive CMOS Sensor and generates excellent image quality. Having
excellent high definition image quality in low-light conditions, this camera could
identify the individuals and objects of interest easily.
With Power over Ethernet (IEEE 802.3af) feature, the need of power outlets
could be totally eliminated; likewise installation and cabling cost would be
significantly reduced.
The IP Dome Camera’s flat and sophisticated design enhances more
application possibilities, such as indoor/outdoor and mobile surveillance.
Additionally, its light weight and compact size offer quick and simple installation
on the ceilings or walls of houses and vehicles.

24
When using static IP address to login to the IP Dome Camera, users can access
it either through “DeviceSearch” software (see Chapter 4. Accessing Camera)
or input the IP address in the URL bar and press “Enter”.
General
•
IP address
This is necessary for network identification.
•
Subnet mask
It is used to determine if the destination is in the same subnet. The
default value is “255.255.255.0”.
•
Default gateway
This is the gateway used to forward frames to destinations in different
subnet. Invalid gateway setting will fail the transmission to destinations
in different subnet.
•
Primary DNS
Primary DNS is the primary domain name server that translates
hostnames into IP addresses.
•
Secondary DNS
Secondary DNS is a secondary domain name server that backups the
primary DNS.
•
Web Server port
Web server port could be set from 1 to 65535.
Advanced
•
RTSP port
RTSP port could be set from 1 to 65535. (Normal Setting Port: 554,
1024 ~65535)
NOTE: Be aware to choose the different port from the one set for the
web server port.
25
5.3.4
DDNS
Dynamic Domain Name System (DDNS) allows a DNS name to be constantly
synchronized with a dynamic IP address. In other words, it allows those using a
dynamic IP address to be associated to a static domain name so others can
connect to it by name.
Enable DDNS
Check the item to enable DDNS.
Provider
Select one DDNS host from the provider list.
Host name
Enter the registered domain name in the field.
Username/E-mail
Enter the username or e-mail required by the DDNS provider for authentication.
26
Password/Key
Enter the password or key required by the DDNS provider for authentication.
5.3.5
Mail
The Administrator can send an e-mail via Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP)
when motion is detected. SMTP is a protocol for sending e-mail messages
between servers. SMTP is a relatively simple, text-based protocol, where one or
more recipients of a message are specified and the message text is transferred.
The configuration page is shown as follows:
Two sets of SMTP can be configured. Each set includes SMTP Server, Account
Name, Password and E-mail Address settings. For SMTP server, contact your
network service provider for more specific information.
27
5.3.6
FTP
The Administrator can set as sending alarm message to a specific File Transfer
Protocol (FTP) site when motion is detected. Users can assign alarm message
to up to two FTP sites. The FTP setting page is shown below. Enter the FTP
details, which include server, server port, user name, password and remote
folder, in the fields. Press “Save” when finished.
28
5.3.7
Motion Detection
Motion Detection function allows detecting suspicious motion when motion
volume in the detected area reaches/exceeds the determined sensitivity
threshold value.
Active Motion Detection
You will be able to turn on/off Motion Detection in System section. Default
setting is Off.
Motion Detection Setting
Users could adjust the parameter and level of Motion Detection Settings.
•
•
•
•
Sampling pixel interval [1-100]: Default value: 10
Detection level [1-100]: Default value: 10
Sensitivity level [1-100]: Default value: 80
Time interval (sec) [0-7200]: Default value: 10
29
Alternative actions to motion can be selected.
Send E-mail when the motion detected
Once motion is detected, the system could automatically send a notice to user’s
E-mail address.
Send message to FTP when motion detected
The message will be sent to FTP site which administrator sets when motion is
detected.
NOTE: Make sure SMTP or FTP configuration has been completed. See
section 5.3.5 Mail and 5.3.6 FTP for further details.

speed could be chose Users could select suitable shutter speed based on the
camera environment.
5.5.2
White Balance Setting
A camera needs to find reference color temperature, which is a way of
measuring the quality of a light source, for calculating all the other colors. The
unit for measuring this ratio is in degree Kelvin (K). Users can select one of the
White Balance Control modes according to the operating environment. The
51
following table shows the color temperature of some light sources for reference.
